No stranger to ghouls and ghosts, 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo looks ready to return to the horror genre as he’s in talks to helm Paramount’s remake of Pet Sematary, reports Variety.
The original “Pet Sematary” was based on the Stephen King novel and “followed a family that moves into a new home next to a cemetery with powers that allow the creatures buried in it to come back from the dead.”
The original brought in $57 million on only a $11 million budget, which led to the 1992 sequel starring Edward Furlong and Anthony Edwards.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the remake to the 1989 horror classic along with Steven Schneider. Matt Greenberg and David Kajganich wrote the script.
Fresnadillo most recently directed Intruders starring Clive Owen.
